CNTs@SnO2@carbon coaxial nanocables with high mass fraction of SnO2 for improved lithium storage
The nanoCable Guy: Carbon nanotubes (CNTs)@SnO2@carbon have been fabricated using a simple procedure. The material exhibits greatly enhanced lithium-storage capacities and excellent cycling performance over extended cycles ...
Sandwich-like, stacked ultrathin titanate nanosheets for ultrafast lithium storage
Sandwich-like stacked titanate nanosheets with the thickness of ≈0.4 nm are successfully synthesized on a large scale using a clean and facile method. The unique material exhibits superior capacity and excellent high rate ...
Glucose-assisted growth of MoS2 nanosheets on CNT backbone for improved lithium storage properties
Pour a little sugar on it: A simple glucose-assisted hydrothermal method to directly grow MoS2 nanosheets (NSs) on the CNT backbone is reported. Several features of these CNT@MoS2 structures, including high MoS2 content ...
One-dimensional hierarchical structures composed of novel metal oxide nanosheets on a carbon nanotube backbone and their lithium-storage properties
Some facile solution methods are developed to directly grow anatase TiO2 nanosheets with exposed (001) facets and SnO2 nanosheets onto a carbon nanotube backbone for the first time. TiO2 nanosheets can also be grown on ...
Building hematite nanostructures by oriented attachment
Getting bigger: Oriented attachment takes place among large hematite nanocrystals with a size over 100 nm to form 2D assemblies that further assemble into 3D superstructures through dipole–dipole interactions. Based on ...
Formation of SnO2 hollow nanospheres inside mesoporous silica nanoreactors
We report an interesting approach for efficient synthesis of SnO2 hollow spheres inside mesoporous silica “nanoreactors”. The as-prepared products are shown to have a uniform size distribution and good structural stability. ...
